days left



School is out, and you've got most of the summer to spend time with your family.  Get inspired by the projects in Kaptin Scarlet's new Dadcando book, then tell us about your favorite games, crafts, and activities in the Dadcando Family Fun Contest!

Families can have fun in all sorts of ways, and Dadcando and Instructables are here to help. Whether you're making a home adventure movie with cardboard props, preparing homemade popsicles, crafting something unique, or just playing a game outside on a sunny day, we want to know about it. To enter the contest, simply make a new Instructable showing others how your family has fun. If it's bringing your family together, we want to learn how you do it!

Share something awesome and win a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 12.1 MP Digital Camera camera! Small and portable, this camera takes sweet pictures as well as nice HD video so you can document all your future family fun! We're also giving away Eye-Fi cards for wirelessly sending photos from your camera and every winner gets a copy of Dadcando (here in the UK) and an Instructables Prize Pack which includes a one-year Pro membership, t-shirt, and more!

So what are you waiting for? Share a great family fun Instructable and help make this summer even better for other families out there! We can't wait to see what you'll do together.
